Essentials are workshops for lawyers new to, or wanting to update knowledge in, particular skills or practice areas. These workshops aim to cover the 'essentials'.

In light of the recent COVID-19 updates and associated restrictions, Leo Cussen Centre for Law considers that it is in the best interests of all stakeholders for all upcoming Workshops to be held remotely. 

What this means:

  • Workshops will be held on the same date, at the same time as originally scheduled, in an online live-stream format for the foreseeable future;

Leo Cussen has successfully hosted workshops, seminars and conferences remotely including interactive sessions and we hope you enjoy attending the program from the convenience of your own environment.
